need you to help us defeat a tyrant to establish the government you say you want us to have then i think we can answer and should answer. >> charlie: leon, what should the president do and why. >> look, i think some of what the president has stipulated as the appropriate conditions for american intervention already exists. david reported today in the times the white house person telling him the president said the best revolutions are organic. it makes them sound a bit like vegetables but if he means indigenous and made by the people, this is a popular uprising that is indigenous and made by the people. the complication comes and this is something we can recognize from the study of history and our personal lives as well is sometimes autonomous people need help and it doesn't compromise the people to help them especially if they're asking for help, which they are and secondly i'm not worried about the united states intervening in a libya civil war. i don't think there's another civil war. i see a dictator and some of his army and a lot of his paid mercenaries brutall brutally sug a p

back on the idea of us stepping forward unilaterally on this but saying, look, if we get the requisite support from the international community, including the arab league, then the predicate has been set for some kind of roll by us in this situation. it has been slow. i agree with rob. and probably what it does is, it slows the attainment of our objectives, and it maybe makes a sort of stalemated situation the best that can be achieved in the short term. but i think something has to be done to stop the rapid erosion of the opposition's position, and that's got to be done sooner than later. >> rose: the tragedy in japan, nuclear safety, and the middle east when we continue. if you've had a coke in the last 20 years, ( screams ) you've had a hand in giving college scholarships... and support to thousands of our nation's... most promising students. ♪ ( coca-cola 5-note mnemonic ) every story needs a hero we can all root for. who beats the odds and comes out on top. but this isn't just a hollywood storyline. it's happening every day, all across america. every time a storefront opens. or
